Benefits of Driving a 2012 Infiniti M Models Sedan

The M strikes an unusual mix of luxury, economy, and sportiness that's unmatched in this class, with strong powertrains, nimble handling and a quiet, refined interior. Its new styling looks at once traditional yet flamboyant, and some will prefer the straightforward interior design to the screen-based systems in other luxury vehicles. The all-new M35h hybrid model provides gobs of power and torque all while delivering the fuel economy of a 1.8L economy car. The M lineup features a wide range of tech gadgetry, including Blind Spot Intervention, setting the M sedan apart from its class.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the Infiniti M gains a hybrid model--the very first gas/electric hybrid from Infiniti. It features a 3.5L V6 mated to an electric motor that makes a combined 360 horsepower. It needs no plug-in charging for its battery packs and can run on either powerplant separately, or both together. Not other changes have been made to the M line for 2012.

Model Strengths

  • Mix of traditional luxury and sport-sedan attitude
  • plush interior upholsteries and trims
  • acceleration and performance
  • all-new hybrid model
  • available accident avoidance technology

Model Review

The 2012 Infiniti M is now offered in three different models: M35h, M37 and M56. A 330-horsepower, 3.7L V6 engine is included with the M37, while the M56 upgrades to a 420-hp, 5.6L direct-injected V8. The all-new M35h features a 360-horsepower 3.5L V6 and electric motor combined, and can run on either one of its power sources at any given time. All models come with a 7-speed automatic transmission that has downshift rev matching and manual shift control. All-wheel drive is available in a road-performance-oriented system that can send up to 50 percent of torque to the front wheels.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
